We travelled to Paradisus with our adult children in March.. We were greeted in the Lobby by the head concierge Mario, he had someone take us to the Royal Services check in immediately. As we were walked through the hotel we were told all about the restaurants and services about the hotel. The check in was quick and easy..with wonderful margaritas served as we checked in. We noticed right away there was a lot space around the pool and plenty of chairs, the hotel was not very crowded. It reopened after extensive remodel in December so it is still a well kept secret! I cant say enough about the service at the hotel!The waiters at the pool were quick and always walking by to see if we needed anything, the hotel has a swimmable beach so we did this a couple of days. The service at the beach was amazing! It was a little bit of a hike to the bar, but Juan Carolos was always running to get something, HE was amazing. We ordered food, drinks and he would even bring more ice to keep the drinks cold. We stayed in the Royal Service rooms so we had access to a couple more restaurants which was very nice. Great Food and never a wait with awesome views! It was my husband's birthday on the trip and we were told they were going to write his name in the sand, we kept looking but it never happened. Would have made a neat picture!All in all it is a great resort! The service is amazing and food is excellent. Can't wait to go back!!!!
My husband and I just went for our anniversary. There were hardly any reviews since it had just opened when we booked, so we were a little weary. It was A-mazing. We seriously couldn't quit talking about how great it was from the first moments we arrived & we are still talking about it now. We booked the swim up suite and it was so perfect. This is my favorite resort we have stayed at and we have stayed at many!Best Things- Champagne/make your own cocktails at the breakfast buffet, sparkling clean resort, spa like decor & landscaping, plenty of lounge chairs & cabanas with pool or ocean view, gorgeous beach with cabana bar, huge swim up bar in the pool... I could keep going. Book this place now you won't be disappointed!
We normally travel to Cabo in April and October, and I like to try new places, as you can see by my review title. We were at the hotel about 7 years ago when it was the Melia Cabo Real, and we weren't that impressed. The property reopened in December 2016 and I wanted to come back and try it. I think the hotel has promise, but still needs a bit of tweaking to reach a five star property.Let's start with check in - very smooth, very quick. We had the Royal service, so our butler met us at the front entrance, and proceeded to give us a quick tour on our way to the Royal check in. We requested an early check in (1PM vs 3PM), and received it. We were offered drinks while checking in - the process was quick and easy. Then Omar, our butler, (more on that later), took us to our room.The room: From those who read my reviews, you may remember that I like ocean front rooms. That often means we get the higher end rooms, and this was no exception. We had the Ocean Front Master Suite - it was on the ground floor and also was a swim up room. The room was gorgeous. We had a living room (which we never used), bathroom with soaking tub, shower, two sinks which opened to the ocean front patio, and the bedroom which also had a door opening to the ocean front patio. There was also a huge dressing room with tons of closet space and drawers that my husband loved. Overall, one of the nicest rooms we've ever stayed in. The bed was super comfortable for me, a tad hard for my husband. Maid Service: Maid service was the best we have seen. And we've seen a lot! The room was always completed when we returned from a day at the pool, (around 5PM). The mini bar was also restocked during that same time - we never wanted for anything. The room also came with 4 bottles of premium liquor that would be replaced if needed. (We didn't need that). There was a Nespresso machine as well, with 6+ pods a day for our use. I'd probably pick a higher floor next time to get a more panoramic ocean view. The Pool: One of the things I liked best about the Paradisus was that the pool was heated! In our stay last year at the Ziva, no one went into the pool because it was so cold. It was set at a perfect temperature - you felt refreshed when you went in, but it wasn't too cold to stay in. Pool chairs were readily available. By 9AM most of the cabanas were taken, but there were always chairs free right by the pool. Waiter service was good - but could be slow if you wanted food for your party delivered to the pool. Service for drinks was great - and drinks were fairly strong, in comparison to some AI's. The Gym: New equipment, not crowded unless you went early (7AM - 8AM). Nice trainer, who is learning English.The Beach: One of the few hotels that has a swimming area. We walked down to it, but stayed at the pool most of the time. Sand is quite coarse. The Spa: Not open. They would arrange beach massages or massages at another facility if you wanted. They are scheduled to open in June.The Activities: This is one area where they could use improvement. At most AI's, you are left a schedule under your door for the next day. Or one is posted near the towels. The Paradisus does neither. It's a very quiet resort. There was a show one evening (rock and fire) and a few other nights there were bands, but I wouldn't have known if the aerobics instructor didn't tell us. There were also some tequila classes, tortilla making classes, etc., but once again they weren't advertised. I did the daily water aerobics with the new instructor (loved her!) but they could have been a bit longer.Royal Service: With Royal Service comes the use of a private pool (we liked the main pool better), the La Palapa restaurant (more on this later, but this alone could justify the upgrade) and a butler. Our butler Omar was perfect - we had a phone to contact him if we needed him, and he also would walk by us once or twice a day to see if there was anything he could do to help us. We didn't need his services but appreciated knowing he was there if we needed anything. The Food: OK, this is an area that needs work. The food itself was EXCELLENT - but the service was all over the map.Naos - This was the breakfast buffet. It was a rather small buffet. Food was good, but twice they were out of main ingredients (eggs, bacon, sausage) and we had to tell them to bring out more food. There was someone making custom eggs and omelettes - a different person each day, and quality varied. Service here was good - we LOVED Ruth - a wonderful personable server who made sure our needs were fulfilled. Most AI's have a buffet open for all three meals - this was only open for breakfast. Market Grille - we went here for both lunch and dinner. Lunch was great, food tasty, and we usually had Ruth again as a server. Dinner was another story - we waited quite awhile for our food, never got our appetizer, and the special dessert our butler ordered for us never materialized. At Market, Mole and Bana we noticed a trend - while all the servers were very busy - things were not done in an organized manner. People waited a long time for their food. Waiters were running from one end of the restaurant to another as their tables were not in the same area. This, in spite of having about 40% capacity. It's a tough call - do you hire and pay people even though you don't need them yet? I'd be afraid to see the service if the hotel was at full capacity. Gabi - great food, good service, wonderful views of the ocean. We wished it was open for dinner.Mole - our oddest experience. The food was great (when it arrived - and it took a long long time). Our waiter was odd - it was like he thought I was someone he had waited on before (and I had never seen him before) and he was almost rude. Other waiters saw our lack of service though, and pitched in. Bana - again, great food, slow service. We didn't order dessert because we didn't want to wait forever. So we just went over to the Market Grille and had ice cream (self serve). LaPalapa - we ate here often. Breakfasts. Lunch, 3 dinners. Each meal was delicious!. Service was outstanding (usually we had Eduardo and Micelia (not sure that is spelled correctly). We even customized some of our orders from items on the menu. Usually there were only 2 or 3 other couples here - one night we were the only people in the restaurant.GastroBar - we didn't try it. If you didn't have Royal Service, you only would have two restaurants to chose from for dinner. That may have led to some of the long wait times. So that sums it up. A lot of positives. Restaurant service and activities the main negatives. Obviously hotel capacity needs to increase for them to make a profit - but I wonder if the hotel can figure out the right balance of staff and service to occupancy.Will we return? There's a good chance we will. Unless somewhere else calls out to me.Until next time!
Must do! Royal Service was worth every penny. Was so relaxed and had best experience in Cabo. Food was decent and lounge was had the best view at night with sound of waves and stars at night. Will definitely visit again.
If you are looking for a good all inclusive resort in a great location this hotel is perfect.It sits on a swimmable beach and also has a great pool area with a swim up bar.There are many restaurants but I recommend the Market Grill as the best with Mole the Mexican restaurant a close second.The hotel has been recently renovated so everything sparkled. But what makes it even better is the staff who all make you experience even better.
